CentOS 7 AMD GPU Driver Tutorial

Postby dp27 » 2018/05/10 13:59:46

Hey, I've had a lot of struggles with Centos 7.4 and AMD GPU Drivers. I've followed AMD instructions along with some other things found in a few forums with no luck.

I'm running AMD FX 8320 and an R9 390 on Centos 7.4

I'd like to install AMD Drivers and Vulkan. Use case is running Davinci Resolve 15 with two Intensity Pro 4k Capture Cards and running linux wine and Emulators.

Plenty of work Beyond AMD Drivers, but help on understanding what packages I need would be extremely helpful. They're is very little info on the Web about installing AMD GPU Drivers on Centos.

Part of the issue I believe revolves around Red Hat. I've created a Red Hat account. I'm not sure what steps need to be made to make sure my Centos machine is detected as having a Red Hat account so assistance they're would also be great.

Thanks for the help.

There's no connection between a RH account and a CentOS system.

I believe some required red hat packages for pre amd driver install is required and requires a Red Hat Account. No sure, but I'm trying anything to get AMD drivers up on Centos.

I don't think so.
